The eleventh revelation of the Champions League: Rodrygo, Lodi… – SPANISH FOOTBALL

by: Adam Smith


UEFA has published on its website this season’s 11th revelation in the Champions League, following several criteria: under the age of 24 and having made their competitive debut in 2019 (or just have previously added a one-off experience). Spanish football is in luck, as it has several representatives in the choice of the body.

Real Madrid finds representation in Rodrygo Goes, who scored a treble against Galatasaray and has become a regular in Zinedine Zidane’s lineups at just 18 years old. The other footballer from LaLiga Santander is Renan Lodi. The departure of Filipe and Lucas forced the board of Atlético to make an effort to incorporate level footballers and the Brazilian has responded well to expectations.

Two other players recognized at our borders are part of the lineup: Achraf and Dani Olmo. The Real Madrid quarry, on loan at Dortmund, has scored a total of four goals in the group stage and has demonstrated its versatility in occupying different positions. Elm, for his part, has played a great role with Dinamo Zagreb, despite being eliminated. That has led him to become an international with the Spanish national team.

In the goal, Meret (22 years old, Naples) has shown that he is prepared to take over the defense of the goal at San Paolo. In addition to Achraf and Lodi, they help you as central Benjamin Pavard (23 years old, Bayern Munich) and Dayot Upamecano (21, Leipzig). Ahead, Sander Berge (21, Genk) and Kai Havertz (20, Leverkusen) have placated their youth with leadership and stripes.

Above, Rodrygo accompanies Haaland (19) and Lautaro Martínez (22). The first, newly signed by Dortmund, scored in Salzburg’s first five matches and has aroused interest from the entire football scene. The second, which was already a reality, has shone on the individual plane, though Inter has fallen to the Europa League. His performance has piqued the interest of great Europeans, including Barcelona.
